Construction on the To-Lyon tower project was officially launched by Vinci Immobilier d’Entreprise, with a symbolic laying of the building’s foundation stone. When completed in 2023, it should become the second-tallest building in the city.

The structure, designed by architect Dominique Perrault, will consist of a concrete block covered with glass. Shops, offices and a hotel will come together in the 80,000-square-meter tower on the former site of the Novotel and Athena hotels, which were demolished.
